And, we’re back!

We are excited to welcome you back in person. We’ve recently updated some of our studio policies to go above and beyond our local guidelines to offer you physically-distanced classes in studio as well as premium livestream classes to support your mental, spiritual and physical well-being from the privacy of your home. All classes are available to YogaFresh members, class package holders and new students.

All YF teachers will be wearing masks in all of our shared spaces such as the lobby, locker area and hallways. Masks will remain optional for our students, however we strongly encourage students to wear a mask when arriving and leaving the studio and anytime off the yoga mat.

We will continue our practice of following the CDC and State of Minnesota guidelines and will keep you informed of any changes to our policies on this page.

See below for all the changes we have made and please know that this list is constantly evolving.

 

BEFORE YOUR CLASS:

Self Health Check

Please stay home if you have a fever or are showing any signs of illness. If you appear to be sick or coughing, you will not be allowed to attend class. If you develop symptoms and/or test positive for COVID-19 within 48 hours of taking class with us in-studio, please email us immediately here so we can alert all students who were exposed.

 

Reservations Required

You must pre-register for all of our classes online at least 10 minutes before the class is scheduled to begin. No walk-ins will be allowed at this time.

Each class title designates “IN STUDIO”, “LIVESTREAM” and “OUTDOORS ON PATIO” options. Please note that many classes have both an IN STUDIO and LIVESTREAM option to choose from. All active members will have priority pre-booking options. If your chosen class is full, join the waitlist and you’ll be added to class (and receive an email notification) automatically if someone cancels.   PRE-REGISTER HERE at least 10 minutes before class and up to 14 days in advance.

 

Late Cancellation / No-show Policy 

If you need to cancel a class, please do so at least two hours in advance to avoid the $10/class late cancellation/no-show fee.

 

YF STUDIO WELLNESS AND SAFETY STANDARDS:

HVAC Upgrades + New Air Sanitization System

YogaFresh has upgraded both of our HVAC units to include two specialized Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization (NPBI) systems that will improve the overall air quality in our studio.

These new air purification systems continuously clean and sanitize the air by eliminating any airborne particulates including harmful bacteria, viruses, mold, and pollen. This technology produces negative and positive ions to break down and purify the air so that you can be assured that our practice space is safe, clean and healthy.

 

Reduced Class Capacity

Class capacities will continue at 50% capacity with 1-11 students per indoor class and 1-8 students per outdoor class. We continue to enforce six foot physical distancing between mats.

 

Cleanliness

Please sanitize your hands upon arrival at YogaFresh. There is touches hand sanitizer available directly inside the front door and in the locker area. If you borrow any of our available props or rent a mat, please sanitize them with the provided wipes.

We’ve increased our deep cleaning process and use a top grade disinfectant proven to kill viruses like COVID-19 in all common areas and in the studios—with a heightened attention to all high-touch surfaces.

 

Mats and Props

For indoor classes, YogaFresh offers the option to bring your mat and any props from home. If you prefer, rent a yoga mat for $2 or borrow our props that include yoga blocks, bolsters, blankets, straps, weights, balls and bands.

For outdoor classes, please bring your own mat and props. YogaFresh mats and props are not available for outdoor use.

A selection of high-quality props and supplies are available for purchase in the YF boutique.

 

Namaste 6 feet Away

For in-studio and patio classes, center the top of your mat with the CONNECT, INSPIRE & THRIVE placement markers to guarantee that all four sides of your yoga mat will be six feet away (or more) from another student at all times throughout class.

Please also limit your time in the studios or common areas to no more than 15 minutes before/after class.

 

Masks 

We honor and respect your personal choice to wear a mask in our shared spaces &/or during your practice or not. Masks remain optional for all of our vaccinated students while attending in studio classes, however we encourage all of our students (regardless of vaccination status) to wear a mask when arriving and leaving the studio and while in any of our common areas. All YF teachers will be wearing a mask in our common areas when physical distancing is not possible.

Patio Classes

All outdoor YogaFresh classes will take place on our patio adjacent to the front doors of our studio. Masks are optional for these classes. If you need to enter the studio for any reason, you are required to wear a mask while in the common areas (lobby, hall ways, etc.)

Review the Props section above for details on props for outdoor and indoor class use.

Patio classes are held weather permitting. In the event of inclement weather such as rain, lightning, cold (if temperature is 60 degrees or below) or excessive heat (if temperature is 90 degrees or higher) our outdoor class will be cancelled. If we cancel the class, your registration will automatically be refunded back to your YF account/package or membership.
